Harry Potter Actor goes to prison

It's so sad to see these young actors doing things like this. Judge Simon Carr has sentenced Jamie Waylett, a cast member of the "Harry Potter" films to prison for his latest role in the rioting that took place across England last summer. Waylett will be serving two years. He played the role of Vincent Crabbe who was one of thugs in Draco Malfoy's gang. Talk about typecasting.

Prosecutors said Waylett was part of a small gang that took part in the riots in north London on Aug. 8, 2011.

A jury at London's Wood Green Crown Court found Waylett guilty Tuesday of violent disorder (disoderly conduct in the United States), but acquitted him of another charge of intending to destroy or damage property with a fire bomb he was holding.

The 22-year-old had already admitted handling a bottle of stolen Champagne from a supermarket during the riots.

Waylett has a previous conviction for growing cannibis in 2009.

Booze, rioting, theft, pot, bombs..oh my!

    Dear author,

    As our great founder Willem Meiners said, "Those whose lives are free of failures have failed to take enough risks." Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett recently took risks and failed but he has succeeded! That's right. He will have much time on his hands for the next two years and we know that Waylett will be looking forward to his bright future when he returns to acting. Willem Meiners will personally deliver well wish cards and a copy of your book when he lands his Hellocopter on the roof on the prison.

    Here's how we do it. Go to our website and order a minimum order of 12 copies of your book. Enter code Harry Potter and the knuckheads of London. Our staff will contact you to personalize your note in the well wish card.
